The Cort L300VF is an alternative to the popular dreadnought shape. The Luce series offers a smaller OM body size so that it is easier to hold and play, but also offers a more balanced sound compared to Concert or Parlor shapes. An ideal balance between classic vintage looks from the golden age of guitars and modern yet practical features. The adirondack spruce is characterized by broad dynamics, as well as articulation at a high volume. The elastic response is suitable for both aggressive strumming and precise pick use. The adirondack spar bracing is further distinguished by the unique tone and response of this exceptional wood. The beloved mahogany used for the sides is bright yet natural with a strong and warm midrange. The solid mahogany back improves body resonance and helps produce more volume.
For that authentic vintage look the guitar is finished with a tortoiseshell binding and a specially formulated toner is applied to the top. The sonically enhanced, high-tech UV finish is strong and resistant to scratches while being lightweight to enhance the body's natural acoustic resonance for a full and rich tone. Furthermore, the L300VF has a 45mm top nut; ideal for fingerstyle. Like the saddles, it is made of water buffalo bone for the most transparent transmission of the vibrations. The Fishman Sonitone EQ is installed in the body so there was no need to cut the wood anywhere. It offers volume and tone controls and maintains all natural resonance. The L300VF offers the best of both worlds in perfect harmony with the OM body shape, solid adirondack spruce top, solid mahogany back and mahogany sides, ovangkol fingerboard, Fishman Sonitone electronics.
